Dependency version compatibility tracking

shall March 14, 2023

Hello,

Is it possible to use Compass to track version compatibility of dependencies? If this isn't an explicit existing feature, can anyone recommend a way to do this with existing features?

 

Example Use Case:

If a new version of a library component is released that breaks compatibility with an application that uses it as a dependency, can this information be stored in Compass? If the application is updated to work with the new major revision of the library, can the version at which compatibility changes be tracked?

 

This use case seems to come up particularly often when using 3rd party / external components as dependencies for in-house developed components. It's important to know which versions we're using to build our products and track when things get updated in potentially code breaking ways.

We're in the process of implementing two types of custom metrics / scorecards that are related to the OP.

 

  1. Metrics on amount and/or type of open Renovate Bot pull requests
  2. Metrics for a few key library versions which we either want teams to adopt / migrate to, or avoid (deprecated, breaking changes, etc).
